Emma Elizabeth Wells (nee BINMORE) who married Frederick Augustus Churcher WELLS in PORTSEA in 1862 and had a son Thomas George Binmore WELLS born 1862, FACW emigrated in 1866 to New Zealand but neither Emma or son Thomas went with him. In 1868 Emma Wells married John Smith in Portsea (certificate held). Emma's father is given as Thomas BINMORE and John as a Private inThe 35th Regiment of Foot. In 1871 Census the son Thomas George Binmore WELLS is recorded as Thomas SMITH age 9 born Portsea. Thereafter it is more difficult to follow His movements. As TGBW he may have been an Apprentice Merchant Seaman in 1878 in Swansea. He was rumoured to be in London in 1888 but under what name, we do not know. Can you help ?

Wells family - earliest records Selborne 1620, possibly Farringdon before that date (not confirmed). My part of family moved to Froxfield then to Portsmouth area 1800 to date. Occupation Wheelwrights, Blacksmiths and later Builders.
Areas of interest Portsmouth, Froxfield, Greatham, Dunsfold (Surrey), Selborne and North East Hampshire where there may be a Wells connection.
